Be one of the first 250,000 people to sign up here today and get a coupon for a free chocolate candy bar of your choice.

Note: The site is going really slow because of the traffic. Keep at it!

Update: This promotion will be running each Friday for four weeks. You can get 1 coupon per person/email each week up to 4 per household.

Safeway, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Vons, & Dominicks have each put up a coupon on their site for a free 1-pound container of fresh strawberries. It was on page two for me, so continue past the $1 off strawberries coupon and keep looking through the pages until you find it. You should be able to print 2 of these coupons.

Click on your respective store to find the coupon:

Note: Some of the coupons may say "with $10 produce purchase," but that should be easy to do!

Note: Firefox would only let me print one to begin with, so I printed two in IE and then tried Firefox again after a few minutes and it worked. The rules say 4 per computer, so try different browsers, etc if it's not working for you.

EDITED TO ADD: If you can't get the coupon printer to work, they've added a link to download and print a pdf file with the coupon here.
